Bubba’s pine straw new must-see spot at Augusta
“I can see pulling it off. It wouldn’t shock me. I would still cry, but it wouldn’t shock me,” Watson said. “At the same time, it’s hard. I mean, looking at history, we’ve only seen it, what, three times? … So it’s going to be tough.”
But the tournament doesn’t start until Thursday. There’s still time to get a look at Bubba’s patch of pine straw.
Padraig Harrington wandered over there during a practice round. He mimicked Watson’s left-handed swing and jokingly suggested that Augusta National should mark the spot with a plaque.
Watson is all for it.
“Who wouldn’t want to see a plaque that says `Bubba’ in the middle of the pine straw,” he said, smiling. “I would never ask for a plaque. But if I do it again this year, then yes, there should be a plaque.”
